Fire Dangers in South Texas gets to close for comfort

Here is a little of what has been going on in my neck of the woods.  This picture was taken out my home office window 24 hours ago.

camp bullis fires The fire is a good 4 miles from my house.  It started  Tuesday afternoon, but was contained within 3 hours.  The very next day it started up again and within 1 hour of seeing a small plume of smoke this is what it turned into at 4:30 pm.  We lost power and had to evacuate as a precautionary measure.  We were back home by 8pm.  There are still hot spots, but the fire is now contained and only a hazy smoke is visible.  We have terrible health quality alerts out now and it smells like a constant bbq outside .   The fires popping up in Texas are very scary and very real.  We are fortunate enough that this fire has not damaged any structures and no one has been hurt.  We have no rain in sight and are hoping for the best now.

We spent Today watching water being dropped from helicopters and fire retardants sprayed along the perimeter of the area.  It’s been very hard to concentrate on “work” blogging because our attention has been focused on this terrible fire that is still looming.  Officials have told us it will take up to 4 days before all the hot spots are out and we are in the clear.

Here is a map of the current Texas wildfires.  Scary especially seeing that little flame right over us.   We are in desperate need of rain.  The forecast calls for a zero percent chance through the week.
